Liberty responds to PM's anti-terror announcement

01 September 2014

Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty, said: “Sabre-rattling and thinly-veiled threats to the Courts, but little detail from the Prime Minister.

“Why demand that the police seize passports on a discriminatory, dangerous basis rather than arrest those intent on committing murder and terror overseas?

“Control orders and Tpims become identical via internal exile at home, while the threat of external exile remains with the dangerous and innocent alike dumped like toxic waste on the international community.”
